I am a 38 yr old female, I have high cholesterol since I was a teenager, my 12 year old son also has it. My concern is I d like to know if I can test for blocked arteries. I don t have any symptons, however it is a worry on my mind, because my uncle died of a heart attact at 37, and my mother had quadauple bypass at 50. Thank you

Am 55 and totally unable to lose weight despite eating less than l000 cals a day. Have IBD and cannot tolerate starches. Was informed by my physician my FBS is now 144, Hem A1C is 6.5, triglyerides are low, HDL 56, LDL 160. Am totally stymied because I cannot eat any less food and she wants me to lose weight. Thyroid is multinodular, but they say all is in the normal range. What can I do? With metabolic syndrome , isn t triglyerides hight and LDL low? Could I be LADA since type 1 is in my family? Would I lose weight if I went on metformin?
